Read from August 08 to 12, 2011 — I own a copy

This was my third time reading this book, the fourth in the adult fantasy series A Song of Ice and Fire (had to refresh my memory for the release of the long-awaited fifth book!). The series was recommended to me by a friend years ago. It didn't seem like something I would like, but gave it a try, and I love it. The books are long (around 1,000 pages each), and there will be seven of them, but the story is so complex, that Martin needs all of those pages. Each chapter is told from a different character's point of view, a writing style that I enjoy because it leads to deep character development. It is an adult fantasy series, not a teen series, so be aware that the books contain rated R content, but it rarely gratuitous and is there to deepen the story and characters. Martin aims for realistic fantasy, so though there is magic, much of what takes place in the book is actually rooted in medieval history.
